By the way the XRCD24 logo can be found more and more often on Combak Corporation products-one should know that Mr Kiuchi is a co-owner of XRCD technology, too.
chose this name for his
new interconnect to emphasize that this is a new generation of product, a very important one for its creator.
This interconnect belongs to the top line called Million and replaces the previous top models from Harmonix Golden Performance line.
Already its look suggests that it belongs to the top line-similarly colored sleeve and wooden elements are a clear resemblance to Harmonix X-DC Studio Master Million Maestro power cord, that we recently reviewed and that proved to be absolutely remarkable.
As usually Mr Kiuchi doesn't share information about the design.
I asked him once why he
offered so few information about his
products that were based on certain technologies and solutions and he
told me that bragging about technical details was a mistake because all that really mattered was music: „whenever a product does not fulfill its primary role, which is conveying music in the best possible way (at particular price level of course), it doesn't matter at all how much one would know about the design, materials, parameters and so on".
One can agree with such approach or not, but it is a clear statement of Mr Kiuchi's

Harmonix cables are well known around the audio world for one, due to the sound quality they offer, and secondly because of their creator, Mr Kiuchi
has been using this policy of small improvements, of taking one step at a time for years and it was a wise choice and a good decision.
The new Mr Kiuchi's
interconnect offers amazingly open sound.
It might be a worthy culmination of Mr Kiuchi's
work and I am sure that JVC Victor studio that is using these cables now will offer even better XRCD24 than ever before.
